Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must-Have in Your Family's Christmas Book Collection! Our boys absolutely love the movie Home Alone, so I was ecstatic when I found out they had written a book based on the movie. It didn't disappoint. The illustrations are bold, colorful and captivating and the text tells the major parts of the story from the movie. We bought it last year for Christmas and it was the first book our six-year old twins were asking for when we took out our Christmas Book collection this year. A must-have for any Home Alone fan, big or small!
